    Here are the 5 benefits of yoga I found most surprising:

    Compassion: Who would have thought that a physical practice could help me feel compassion and understanding for myself and those around me? Yoga philosophy tells us that weíre all one, but itís the experience of many bodies moving and breathing simultaneously that I think really created that understanding for me. I realized that weíre all just doing the best we can in life. Thereís something very liberating about that mind-set that can melt away ill-will, competition, and petty disagreements like nothing else.

    Mindful eating: I am not a health-food yogi. In fact, at one point in my life, my daily diet consisted of little more than chicken fingers, French fries, and soda. But after a just a few months of yoga, I found myself craving leafy greens. Yoga changed the way I ate because I started to pay more attention to how the food I took into my body affected me. I still eat my share of junk food (I do love a good cupcake!), but thanks to my yoga practice, itís an occasional treat instead of a daily habit.

    Strength: I was shocked when I realized how much strength it took to get through a yoga class. I was even more surprised by how quickly how strength-building poses that were once incredibly difficult for me got a little easier. I wasnít just getting more flexibleĖI was becoming stronger, too!

    Confidence: Itís one thing for someone to tell you that you can do anything you set your mind to. Itís another thing to actually experience it for yourself. It takes a lot of time and determination to stand on your head, hold the weight of your body on your hands, or even just to consistently unroll your mat to practice. But once youíve experienced it, you really start to believe you can do anything! You also start to see a beauty in yourself that you never knew was there. For me, this translated into a boost of confidence that I really needed.

    Better relationships: What do you get when you mix a little heightened awareness, a dash of compassion, a pinch of self-confidence, and a smidge of positivity? The ability to relate to people in a more meaningful way. And that means you get a stronger network of friends, confidants, and supporters. Of all the benefits Iíve reaped from my yoga practice, perhaps this is the most valuable of all.

                "Yoga" is a Sanskrit term which means to unite or to join. And the main purpose of yoga is to bring together body, mind, and soul into harmony. It involves different physical postures also known as asanas, with breathing techniques also known as pranayama and meditation also known as meditation.
                It was one of the rituals to be followed in our day to day life or better knowns as dinacharya.

                Yoga is gaining lots of importance very recently as people are suffering from both physical as well as mental health has benefitted many people in tackling their issues both physically and mentally very successfully..

                Yoga is now well known in many different ways one of which is Power Yoga. It's a style of exercise created by K.Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century. This is now often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian Yoga. The style is energetic, synchronizing breathing with movements.
                Many Indian celebrities and different health seekers are promoting the practice of yoga in their own way. Popularly known figures are:

                Baba Ramdev: who is known nationally as well as internationally for his yoga teachings. He has conducted camps, schools, etc. which teaches different yoga practices for different diseases and helped people to stay healthy. He has created his brand as Patanjali yoga sutra which is quite popular across the globe.

                Sri Sri Ravishankar Guruji: He is the founder of the institution called Art of Living which teaches Sudarshana kriya,which is the combination of asanas,pranayama and dhyana. He has it's branches all over the world and has gained success in healing people.

                Sadguru: Isha foundation of Sadguru's also teaches people seeking for yoga . This foundation has successfully healed milloins of people from different diseases both physically and mentally. People across the world come to India to especially learn yoga and to practice it in their lives..

                why yoga is so popular.??

                Yoga will help tone your body but while it's doing that, it also helps you to be truly in the moment and infuses your spirit with positive energy. During a yoga practice, you focus on the breath, the posture and the gaze. Hence you have balanced mentally also.
                Whereas a gym workout is focused primarily on improving your body's physical condition.
                Birla Ayurveda has over 15 therapy centers in India, which are a combination of wellness Ayurveda, day care treatment centers, stay facilities, Ayurveda medicines and Ayurveda doctor consultation.

                        Benefits of Yoga

                        Hi all

                        I have heard that there are lots of benefits of doing yoga and meditation. We are fit physically as well as mentally. The only question raises to my mind is what is the difference between yoga and exercise. What are the special benefits that we can have with yoga rather then exercise. I think both have the same benefits but we have to join yoga classes and pay money for learning than why should we go only for exercise?
